All smartphones are virtually identical - minor cosmetic and changes in gimmick based 'apps' and that's it. None of them are smart enough to keep themselves charged for more than a few hours before you are connecting them to a charger again.
They are too big for the pocket, but the screens - big as they are, are too small to watch videos on comfortably and doing this flattens the battery even faster anyway. I found with mine I was missing calls. By the time I had extracted it from my pocket, enabled the touchscreen and selected 'Accept call' the caller had rung off!
I've ditched mine in favour of the simplest, smallest clamshell phone I can find. Speech and texts, and thats IT! It gets charged once every couple of weeks - at MY convenience not that of the phone's - and my life is lot more hassle free as a result. When it rings, I take it from my pocket flip it open and start talking. No stupid touchscreen and no missed calls.
If, on odd occasions, I want a bigger screen for maps or to show someone photos or a video, say, I use a tablet. Horses for courses. A phone is a phone. Why try to cram it with stupid facilities you are rarely if ever going to need or use?
